Burnett to Take Beckett's Spot this Week

Postby d18Mike » Mon May 31, 2004 7:16 am

It's official, AJ Burnett will come off the DL this week to take the place of Blisters Beckett in the rotation. Instead of the June 2 start vs. the Reds that was rumored, Burnett will pitch against the Mets on Thursday.

The question now: is Burnett ready? Let's see what the Marlins have to say about him the next few days. He was pretty wild in his last rehab start, but those strikeouts are enticing. I'm leaning towards starting him.

I remember that the Mets can hit Burnett well in Shea. In Florida, I think he's better against them but he gets rocked in Shea. Only a guess from the Mets games I've watched though - no real evidence.

Thanks...he and Burnett are going to have to pick up the slack on my team with Beckett gone. I think the kid is up to it ;-D
